2x 60min: Effective Prototyping and GraphQL
Robin Vercammen, Rik Van Camp

We're kicking off the fall of 2017 with an evening with two 60 min sessions!

Efficient data fetching using ASP.NET core, GraphQL
Why do we build REST endpoints on an API? Is it still the way to go for your client? Most of the applications I’ve build are ’tightly’ coupled to their backend. So why go through the same boilerplate endpoint definitions time after time? Join me in welcoming GraphQL to the playground. GraphQL's  ‘query language’ allows our client to communicate to a GraphQL API over web protocols (HTTP, ws) while fetching content from any data source. Discover with me how we build a GraphQL API in .NET core, examine how data is retrieved, and display it in a single page application.

Total project control with Agile Prototyping
In this session, you'll learn how Agile Prototyping can help you in gaining control over your software project and make the experience of building software more fun for you and your client.
Despite SCRUM being an excellent way of working, we still weren't happy with the amount of feedback we were getting when demoing our finished software. You know, the kind of unwelcome feedback that hurt your project budget and makes your development team cry.

To solve this problem once and for all we introduced the concept of Agile Prototyping into our project approach.
We took Prototyping, a technique from the world of User-Centered Design, and used it to dramatically speed up the feedback loop of our software projects.
